The fourteenth season of Mister Roger's Neighborhood debuted in November 1983 with a five-episode arc titled "Conflict", a direct response to the ABC telefilm The Day After, which featured graphic nuclear-war imagery. This arc focused on the Neighborhood of Make-Believe where they almost go to war by jumping to conclusions. Due to both the episodes and news of the time involving war, the arc was pulled from regular rotation on April 5, 1996.[1] The only footage of any of the "Conflict" episodes that has resurfaced after 1996 is in a five-minute YouTube video which was uploaded by the user fwbh, as seen below. On May 1, 2015, a sets of screenshots from the "Conflict" episodes have been found by TheDoctor64, via the Neighborhood Archive.

To me, there is absolutely no excuse for this to be lost. The arc was pulled from regular rotation about 13 years after it's intial debut. Someone must have recorded these episodes after all those years in regular rotation

In today's world where nuclear war can happen, I feel like this episode should be shown to teach today's kids that there's nothing to be afraid of.
